I’m home from a weekend away in the caravan – and as it’s Monday I get to roll the dice again. What number will I get this week?. After slaving away on my Christmas Stars and Nine Patch quilt last week, and not getting nearly enough accomplished, I was prepared to have to put it away and work on something else. I’d decided when I first started with my dice rolling that there would be no cheating or manipulations of numbers, and the quilting angels must have been on my side this week as number 5 came up again, two weeks in a row. So I’m a happy quilter, and fingers crossed, will get to complete this project this time around.
The big question as I started to quilt the remaining stars – will my roll of variegated thread last the distance? Yes it did, with a little to spare.
Almost at the end of the roll
But I’m not finished yet - I then decided that I needed to quilt in the ditch around each star. So that’s my plan, and I’ll get to the finish line eventually, enjoying the journey as I go along.
